Ezekiel Now Says Kid's Toy Guns Are Illegal.

Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) CEO, Ezekiel Mutua and the Council of Imams and Preachers of Kenya (CIPK ) on Saturday, January 13 called for the ban of toy guns in Kenya The KFCB CEO argued that children who play with toy guns can easily be brainwashed into terrorism

Speaking at a meeting with the CIPK leaders at the Kenya School of Government in Mombasa, the moral police urged parents to buy books, computers and other toys that will motivate them to do great things with their lives. "Why should a child have a gun? what are we teaching them? Do you want them to become terrorist? We must ban them, a toy gun is not good for our children, instead buy for them books, computers or football so that they become the next Victor Wanyama."" noted Mutua

He added that video games with violence and action-packed movies should also be banned "We are socializing children to violence and crime, parents should guard what their children are watching in the movies. Computer games where people are shot dead and houses torched are not good " he added He went on condemn foreign filmmakers for shooting films in th country without obtaining license from the agency. He claimed that the foreign filmmakers pose a danger to national security and deny local licensed agents money. "They could be terrorist. how do we know they have good intention if they don not have filming license?"

Mutua's call for ban on toy guns and video games came just a day after Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi called for ban on illegal betting dens. This was in a bid to protect school children from cheap and unregulated betting games. He ordered a fresh crackdown on illegal betting as well as the sale and consumption of illicit alcohol. He also sent a stern warning to foreigners involved in illegal betting that they would be arrested, charged and deported.
